The Russian Orthodox Church in cooperation with the Roman Catholic Church will inform the world and European communities of its "categorical rejection of such judgments and stimulate the condemnation of the Europeans Court of Human Rights' practices in various domains," Patriarch Kirill said.

LOL! LOL! Russia is not in the EU and in Russia the separation of Church and state is now a gray zone. On the other hand, Italy, Greece, Cyprus, and Poland (four out of 27 members) are bound by the EU constitution to which they agreed voluntarily. They also have the option of leaving the Union over crosses in public schools and join Russia. Do you think that's realistic?

Russia influenced European politics as a “Protectress of Slavs” in 19 and 20th century.
Now she will influence European politics as a “Protectress of Christianity”
My guess.
